I’ve been receiving a few membership renewal or welcome packs in the post recently, and nothing makes you feel ‘welcome’ into a loyalty program like a bit of membership paraphenalia… it’s like you’ve finally arrived. And then generally about 2 minutes after you’ve opened it that feeling disappears, but it was nice while it lasted!
First up, here’s a few grabs of the welcome gumph you get from joining InterContinental Ambassador, which paid for itself during our recent around the world trip. It took about 6 weeks to arrive in Australia after joining.
IC Ambassador membership, for $200 US gives you
- Complimentary one-room upgrade on eligible stays at IC hotels
- Free weekend night certificate for use at any IC worldwide
- Welcome amenities such as fruit/water
- 5000 Priority Club points
- Priority Club Gold
There we go – exciting, right?
More to come from Qantas Gold and, somewhat obscurely, from the Priority Privilege program as well.
